I'm no Handy Manny. I'll be the first to admit that. I leave it to my husband to handle all things that require fixing. As far as car maintenance, I can do the very basics. I can put gas in the tank. I know how to check my tire pressure and put air in the tires, if needed. I know the basic concept of changing a tire, although I've never physically done it before. I also know signs and signals.

I better get some gas or I wonder how far I can go before the car stops running.

But what in the world is this?
Yeah, that explanation point in the middle of a cauldron. Does it mean somethings cooking and I better remember to remove it from my fire pit?
It's obviously something important because the manufacturer decided to use an "!" In other words, I better do something about this problem. If I only knew what the car was trying to tell me.
It turns out one of my tires had a small hole that was causing my tire pressure to fall. In other words, the symbol above is telling me I have a flat tire?
Really? There wasn't something they could have used to make it a little more obvious.
